Hi!  I am the Deafblind Specialist for DARS in Houston area.  Please let me 
know if I can help to answer any questions.  You can reach me via email or at 
(512) 377-0566.  My schedule is pretty full for meeting times in August, but 
would be happy to get together in September, sooner if you would just like to 
talk by phone.  I am not the person who makes decisions about what a DARS/DBS 
caseworker supports, but can help you to understand what may be impacting your 
situation.   
Rachel

Viv- why would a family lose Dars services? We just had a meetings with Rachel 
Simpson and even moving into transition or adult services she said there were 
opportunities for training specifically if it would be something to help With 
becoming more employable or improve volunteer possibilities.
A conference like this is awesome
For related outcomes because it's all
About improving accessibility everywhere a db individual would be from phones 
to Braille notes to service dogs to understanding ADA.

We look up to our families with older db kiddos and don't want to be shocked if 
there aren't services like Dars at 16. Pls help us understand.

Thanks!
Caroline
